I may have picked up Pokemon Go again now that they've added in a bunch of new features. And it may have rekindled my obsession with the game. I've got Pokeball shaped cookies at the bakery, and not only are we a gym, but there are two pokestops across the street that you can reach from the lobby.

All Pokemon trainers are welcome, though just know that if you take over the Baxter Bakery gym, it'll be blue again within the hour. ;)

I'd say that Bea has taken to summer. She loves the kiddie pool. I just put it in the shade, and slather her with sunblock...

Baxter Bakery is looking to host a book club! If that sounds like something you'd like to join, please comment below. I'd like to see how many people might have interested before finding a day and time that works for everyone!

Ya know, with all the traveling and adventures I have with the Doctor, I don't really seem to care how it's hurting the people I left behind.

When things get crazy, you are always welcome here at Baxter Bakery. Like Rose said, it's a safe haven here. We've got wards up for protection. And we have scones. Win-win.

So. Don't go outside. You probably saw everyone else's posts about what's goin' on and think 'oh it can't be so bad, I've seen worse!' No way, these buggers are smart. And that makes them scary. I plan to hunker down and sit the rest of this out!

And if you're one of those hero types that wants to look out for everyone else, bless you. After all this blows over, come over to Baxter's and there's a coffee and danish in it for you.

The 2018 Pulitzer Prize winners had some fantastic stories about the last year. The use of social media in reporting the California fires kind of reminded me of this forum. For all the strange things that happen here, this place is rather ideal for organizing resistance and relief efforts. Don't you think?

Okay, so raise your hand if anyone else had a weird dream about Sabretooths. Like, that stuff's not from my dreamworld for sure but the other day I 'woke up' or dreamt I was in prehistoric times and it felt very freakin' real.

[OOC EDIT: I CLEARLY DID NOT READ THE WIKI CLOSE ENOUGH AND DIDN'T REALIZE DINOS WERE EXTINCT IN THIS ERA AND IT WAS ALL BIG MAMMALS. OOPS. I'M RETCONNING FINN'S COMMENTS TO SABRETOOTH CATS.]

Okay. I don’t care if it is going to eat up most of my savings, I can’t stay in this house one more night. I’m renting a room here, I’ve gone along with everything the landlord’s asked as far as how the public areas of the house are kept, it’s his home. But when I come home and he’s gone into my room and rearranged my personal things to “make it easier” for me to find them... that’s way past the line of what I’m comfortable with.

I’m going to be late to work tomorrow. I’ll try to keep apartment hunting to my days off though.

I do enjoy this time of year. The Shamrock shake. Super yummy.

And I get to make mint candy cookies! And clover cookies! At Baxter Bakery we have these treats available until St. Patrick's Day. I hope you'll come and try them out!

It's so much fun to pull out these recipes once a year and revisit them!

I am exhausted. The bakery looks like a Cupid vomited all over it--pink crepe paper and hearts and red and white balloons... It was worth it, though. Definitely ready for a Valentine's day celebration after the crazy of the last few weeks!

Who else is looking forward to pink frosted cupcakes?

Ugh, Taxes. Not my favorite time of year. My accountant retired last year, and I should have found a new EA at the time, but I foolishly thought that I could handle it all myself! Laughworthy.

Does anyone have a trustworthy accountant or EA on the books that they might recommend?

I have a new cookie recipe thanks to the Dreams but I don’t think I’m ever going to use it. It’s just not my thing. Here at least. DreamJess is getting ready for Sam to come home when their friend Brody shows up, and despite being dressed for bed she lets him in to hang out for a while. I’ve just given up on understanding the decisions she makes.

Hey guys! In case you didn't know, Izzy and I were on an episode of Food Network's "Bakery Wars" and we're having a viewing party here at the bakery! You'll have to come and watch with us (or watch at home!) to find out what sort of baked items we made, and whether or not we won the challenge and the cash!

We're going to have a viewing party here at BB1 the day the show airs. More details are coming soon! :)

My baby girl turns 1 year old today. You should see her with her cake. She's absolutely covered in the frosting. I don't know where this tradition came from of giving the one year old a piece of cake to smash into her face (and all over her body--there's even some in her hair!) but I love it.

It really should not be surprising that a dark ops group that fake their recruits deaths would be prepared to completely destroy each and every one of them with an automatic fail safe. And yet, here I sit, surprised.

On a less deathy note; wtf does one do with apple trees? Someone failed to inform me that my property has about six apple trees in the damn yard and the birds are starting to piss me off.

So went to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 last night, despite the Star Wars chaos going on around us at the moment. I won't give spoilers, but as the kids these days say: THE FEELS. SO MUCH FEELS.

And of course, the movie has a lot of laughs too. I'm a little bummed that movie me has basically started from scratch development wise. In the comics, I retain who I am and who I know, and everything so that really I'm not a 'baby Groot' so much as just a really tiny version of myself. But the movie literally has me at like, little kid age. And I'm not the brightest crayon in the box either, which, is kinda not cool.

BUT. Still loved it. I wanted to find Rocket and give him a giant hug afterwards, but I know that's not his thing.

The register at the bakery isn't working. I can't even get the drawer open. The rest of the lights and things are on... Either I have a dud register, or something really wonky's going on. I'm certainly hoping this is one of those "Orange County" things that will be over in a few days?

Registers are really expensive. :(

Sorry to those who do the sparkling latte whosits (I'm still not certain what that is, or even what a latte itself is - that's not quite how we drink our coffee in Northern Ireland) but it appears you're going to be up against some stiff competition soon here. I'll bet my next paycheque that my sister will want ten of these.

At any rate, managed to give away the Shears of Destiny - to its somewhat rightful owner, at least. Now I just need to hold a yard sale for all the other junk I've received. Like a heavy black cloak from my Dark One days or a sand dollar from Neverland - they can send or receive holographic messages, which seems quite advanced for a medieval era but magic is always ahead of its time, isn't it? Though it seems kind of moot here anyway, what with the invention of mobile phones now.

I'm looking for egg-dying recommendations. I usually go pretty plain and simple with the eggs in my house, but I thought it might be fun to try something new this year. We'll be decorating eggs on Saturday. Does anyone have any ideas? Unusual traditions? I'm trying to find interesting stuff, but my Pinterest-Fu skills are failing me.

Thoughts?

I legit miss having my dreams. Seeing the others from them posting about where they are at...it's like, knowing the end of a really cool movie and doing all you can to not give out spoilers. I'd rather be dreaming along with 'em.


ANYHOW. Wedding plans are coming along, bit by bit. Flowers are done (of course, hello), we all know who's providing the cake :D, location's squared away. We're workin' on invitations and eventually food. And decorations. Yeah, we kinda need someone for that. Any takers?

Ugh, did you ever just have one of those days? One of those days where nothing seems to be going right? I spilled so much flour this morning. What a waste. And then we ran out of coffee beans. Well, just the light roast, but so many people enjoy it. Turns out I thought I'd ordered enough, but apparently not. I'll have to order extra next time.

Just... all my fault. I can't even blame it on anyone else! Such a bad mood.

Maybe a hot chocolate and a scone will help.

If I never see another Valentine or glitter ever again, it will be too soon. Despite the cleaning I did before I left yesterday and the janitorial staff cleaning - there is still glitter from the children’s Valentine party all over my classroom. The kids had fun though and that’s the important thing right?

This is what I do when I'm stuck inside because of the snow. I bake. (Seriously? Snow? C'mon.) Ben's been out playing in it, but I let Merlin handle that. Maybe it's the Southern Belle buried deep inside, but I'm not all that fond of the snow.

I'm making Snowball Christmas Cookies. A little late for Christmas, I know, but the snow part is fitting? We'll have them on special at Baxter Bakery, along with all kinds of Hot Chocolate (try it with Sparkling Milk!) to help fend off the cold.

I have to admit I am glad not to be working today. For many reasons including still being stuffed full of food from yesterday and not having to deal with whatever injuries people get from fighting over black friday deals.

Apparently even though we don't have Thanksgiving in the UK the Black Friday deals are taking place. Madness.

I am not looking forward to the glucose screening test I have scheduled for tomorrow morning. I'm also not looking forward to not getting to eat breakfast tomorrow morning either. Hopefully things will be normal and I won't have to have the three hour long test.

Nothing new in dreamland, thankfully enough. I'm curious though as to what's going on with the monster that's been chasing Sherry. I have a theory on who it might be, but I'm not exactly 100% sure yet on that. I guess we'll see once the dreams continue on for me.

I can't believe that Bea is just past five weeks. It's gone by so fast! I can't wait to get back to work full-time. I took a couple days coming into the shop to help out, and I'm just thrilled at how well things are going without me! I miss you all so much, though!

I'll bring the babe in next week to meet some of my regulars. If you want to catch up, please let me know!
